Intel announced just recently that it has started shipping the 32GB version of its X-25E Extreme SATA 2.5-inch form factor SSD.

 

The X-25E is the most expensive of Intel's line of solid-state drives using high-speed SLC (single level cell) memory. Intel claims its drive is capable of up to 250MB/s sequential read speeds and up to 170MB/s sequential write speeds.

Intel achieves this breakthrough performance through innovations such as 10-channel NAND architecture with Native Command Queuing, proprietary controller and firmware efficient in advanced wear-leveling and low write amplification. The 32GB X25-E is capable of writing up to 4 petabytes (PB) of data over three-year period (3.7 TB/day), and double that for the 64GB version - delivering outstanding data reliability.

 

Intel says that the 32GB capacity drive is in production now with a price of $695 each for quantities up to 1,000. Furthermore, the 64GB version is expected to sample in the fourth quarter with production estimated in Q1 2009.
